It's about -22 degrees (Celsius) here today. Not sure what that is in Fahrenheit but it's pretty damn cold. So I'm sitting here at my desk, huddling beside my space heater, about to make a cup of hot tea and hating Matt and his warm evening rides. Just kidding Matt, I only really HATED you when I had to stand outside to wait for my kids to come home on the bus and I started to lose feeling in my toes.
It's great to be back here writing again. I'm humbled by the fact that you guys still want to come and visit and read my ramblings and I'm happy that we're all coming back together after too long away.
I'm insanely jealous of those of you who are making your way out to the Tour of California next month. As Cathy knows, I've been trying to get down there for a couple of years now but it just never works out - either no time or no money or both. However, I'll be living vicariously through you guys and, as Cathy mentioned, I'm happy to be doing the daily race reports for US Cycling Report. I thought I might try to report on the whole race without mentioning Lance Armstrong once - whataya think? No?
Okay, now for that cup of tea...
